Summer Movie Guide: July 2012: Week Two

Ice Age 4: Continental Drift

The makers of the Ice Age franchise are back at it again with a third sequel to the wildly successful franchise full of celebrity voices.  Naturally, this one will probably do as well, or nearly as well, as the others.  Considering it’s already made nearly $200 million before it is even released in the US, it is already pretty much a success, and the domestic gross will be all profit from this point.

IN LIMITED RELEASE

Easy Money

This one was an international hit when it was first released a while back, and now that Joel Kinnamin is getting wide acclaim for his role in The Killing  and his upcoming role as Murphy in the RoboCop reboot, it’s no wonder they’re taking this one stateside.  It’s getting a limited release from The Weinstein Company, and I’m curious what  the progress is on the Zac Efron-starring remake is.

The Imposter

The Imposter is an interesting documentary about a 16 year old French boy who convinces a grieving Texas family that he is their son that went missing for 3 years.  The whys and hows are what will make the film worth watching or not, so I’m hoping this one gets a wider platform release as it goes.

Red Lights

 

Rodrigo Cortes returns to the director’s chair after Buried with Ryan Reynolds, he takes on the extraterrestrial world of paranormal psychics, as Cillian Murphy and Sigourney Weaver play a psychologist and assistant that investigate a psychic (Robert DeNiro) who has resurfaced years after his toughest critic mysteriously disappeared.  I’m still not sure what to expect with this one, and the lack of promotion has me thinking Millenium Entertainment doesn’t have a lot of faith in the title.  We’ll see as it expands, I suppose.
